A flight review consists of at least 1 hour of ground training and 1 hour of flight training with a certified flight instructor. The purpose of the review is to go over current general operating and flight rules, found in part 91 of the FARs, and review maneuvers and procedures that are necessary for safe flight.
To complete the review and exercise the privileges of your certificate, you must have a logbook endorsement from an authorized instructor.
The AeroVenture Institute stands ready to help you complete flight reviews as well as instrument proficiency checks to help you make sure you are maintaining your knowledge and skills and to keep your pilot certificates current.
Several times per year, the AeroVenture Institute in partnership with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) hosts at Rusty Pilot Seminar for airmen who find themselves out of currency. The seminars are free and open to the flying public. Please call for upcoming dates and details.

If you have gone more than 6 months and do not meet the aforementioned Instrument Experience requirements, you can complete an Instrument Proficiency Check with an authorized AeroVenture Institute instructor to regain your coveted Instrument Currency. An FAA-approved PI-135 Flight Simulator is available for use toward maintaining your Instrument currency.
An Instrument Proficiency Check consists of the areas of operation and instrument tasks required in the Instrument Rating Airman Certification Standards (ACS).
